|Made with version:
That's right, not one but two enemies to have fun with, the Lion who has you under attack from the start, and The Emir who only wants to learn from the Lion is attacking to, as the map opens you will see that you have a small variety of troops to try and survive the beginning with, no problem you don't have to many goods or a lot of choices in the market, so you might want to get used to restarting if you are not a power player, it took me 6 restarts to finally get a hold.
In the beginning the Lionheart stood across from his unnatural ally, Emir the Arabian, they both had what they wanted and saw no need for hostilities, over the years they found their alliance to be a good one, after many attempts by invading enemies they both had helped each other to overcome all invasions to their Castles, if you want to call the attempts invasions, when a new lord came to build there would be invasions alright but not what the intruder had in mind, the Lion would send his troops out to remove any new threat and the Emir happily joined the fray.
Now it is your turn, you will be the new intruder, the latest Lord to try and settle in this already owned kingdom, the Lion saw you coming and set out the welcoming party, no need to call on the Emir for he saw you as well and will be joining the Lion, your invasion is doomed from the start, maybe if you snivel and whine enough the Allies will take pity on you and let you run away, HaHaHa!!! not likely!
So you think you will stay a while, no need to explain any strategies to you my Lord, if you want to stay then you must already have the skills and experience to setup a castle in such a hostile land, no sniveling or whining for you, go ahead throw your chance to run away, bring on the Lion, I'm not afraid of the Emir, lets see your tune in a few years, if you are the Lord you think you are then Victory will truly be sweet.
Enjoy your stay, no sniveling or whining please, just plain old hard work will do.
Buttu is another map inspired by Peter, his Apple Wars got me thinking about Skirmish invasion maps, and our chats have pushed me to try and make one, so I made a few test maps to see how things would work, when I thought I had enough to go on, I made this map, I started with an invasion map and converted it to a skirmish map and set up the Lion and Emir, then played until the Lion started to attack, I then saved the game and switched the save back to a map, then converted it back to an invasion map and added a few more buildings and resources for the AI Lords, now the map starts like some of the harder trail maps and after you get established you can build toward your own invasions, I did do all of the scripting before any switching, but it's hard to tell if it works or not.
Come back and let me know how you liked this map, I think you will like it a lot.
